On the shoreline of Lake Bolsena–the Bolsena/Gradoli side

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that for the first time this year I have been able to wear summer gear on a weekend – I’m sporting shorts, a tank top and my favourite Havaianas.

The recent typical English weather has made me long for sunny days and a bit of warmth so I thought I would share with you some pictures from the area where I spent over 7 years.

Given that it is summer, I wanted to write about the lake.  Lake Bolsena provided hours of enjoyment for my family.

Whether it was having a meal in a restaurant near the shore of the lake such as this one – Oasi del Pescatore.

Other times we have gone to eat meals at the Purgatorio.

The following photos are taken from a walk along the shoreline at Bolsena.

It is a very popular place for a passeggiata (the Italian social ritual of walking out in town and being seen in your best clothes).

After a walk it is then a good idea to pause for a while for a chat and a gelato.
